Cinco de Mayo!

This week was full of fun.  We learned about our solar system and all the special characteristics of the planets.  I think we may have some future astronauts in our class!

We did some fun games on the computers.

Astronaut Space Helmets 

Students wrote in their journals about which planet they liked the most and why.

Space Alien Puzzle

We learned so many fun facts about outer space, we loved reading and exploring these great books!  We even played a game of "Solar System Challenge", students had to test their knowledge in this fun game.  These smart Kindergarten-ers know all about the order of the planets, the largest planet, the smallest, the hottest and many more interesting facts about space!

 Thursday was May 5, Cinco de Mayo!!  We celebrated this Mexican holiday, it was an extra fun day!  We enjoyed learning about the traditions of other cultures!


Hola, Amigos! 

We had a fiesta too!  Thank you to all the parents who provided food for our fiesta!  It was great!

Lots of pretty decorations

Ready to eat!

Lawson and his mom shared some fun things they have from Mexico.  Here is a Mexican marionette.

A fun book about the traditions in Mexico. 

Then it was time for the pinata! 

This was fun for everyone, we had a blast trying to bust it open!

Finally all the candy came pouring out!

All of the cute seniors and senoritas! 

On Friday, we got ready for Mother's Day and made some great gifts for mom.  We also had some fun and played board games.
